GAMBIA    (Republic of the)    [www.gm]

            slavery unit : dalasi        slavery tongue : English        tongues : Mandé, Fula, Wolof, Serer, Jola        1800000 idiot monkeys on 11295 km²

            puke sects : muslim 90%    X 10%

            (NB : Colonial frontieres of shit in the whole AFRIKA since the 1885 Conference of Berlin of shit.)

          Acordin to its dezigner Louis Thomasi the red band of the flag symbolizes the sun while blue is the river Gambia itself and green is for the land. The white fimbriations represent both peace & serenity. Another explanation says that blue stands for loyalty while green is for hope & the open mind of the people. Once more I notice you can alwayz make a flag tellin wotever you want !!!! If I can aford a personal remark then I say I find this flag simply just very ugly. But it's only my subjective point of view : it has no value in matter of vexilology ! The present pattern was adopted on 18 FEBRUARY 1965.

            AS USUAL WIKIMERDIA IS JUST SHIT :

            CONTROVERSY ABOUT BOTH DEZIGN & COLORS OF THE COURLAND NAVAL ENSIGN :

                I V drawn my own dezign after Mello LUCHTENBERG's flag just right below this one :

                Mello LUCHTENBERG's flag vizible here : www.vexilla-mundi.com/gambia_history.html

            Mello LUCHTENBERG drew his own dezign after this real document just below :

                but as the crab loox like a louse I V shifted my animal !!!!

                To me the best compromize betwin both louse & crab shapes is vizible here : www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?534146-OFFICIAL-WIP-SUBMOD-Imperial-Splendour-2-2-1b-State-Regimental-and-Naval-Flags/page9

                A wrong flag with a BLAK crab insted of a golden one is vizible here : althistory.wikia.com/wiki/File:Flag_of_Courland_%28Naval%29.svg

                THE SAME wrong flag is REtaken here : flaglog.com/post/111225345031/courland-17th-and-18th-century-naval-flag-the

            THE CONTROVERSY IS AS FOLLOWS :

            Acordin to the real document the crab SHALL BE golden and CERTAINLY NOT blak. However can we trust the raspberry color of this very document as CORECT or as a faded "washed out" brown red dye ???? Remember the flag of DUCHY OF COURLAND since 1561 :

                Duchy of Courland 1561 : it is DEFINITELY red brown, not raspberry.
